Nancy M. Ables Obituary
Nancy M. Ables February 18, 1929 - February 24, 2018 SAN DIEGO Nancy Ables, loving wife, mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully on February 24, six days after her 89th birthday. Nancy attended Alice Birney Elementary, Horace Mann Jr. High and San Diego High. In September 1946, she started her freshman year at San Diego State and met another freshman just out of the Navy. Tom Ables asked her to the Frosh Reception, she said yes, and two years later they were married. They were together for 69 years until Tom's passing in October 2017. Nancy worked at San Diego Unified schools until their first son Tom was born. From that point on, Nancy's full-time job was raising Tom and Ken, their second son born five years later. Nancy was an active member of Point Loma Community Presbyterian Church. She sang in the choir for 50+ years, and volunteered. She and Tom shared a love for Aztec basketball and football, the races at Del Mar and tennis. Nancy is survived by son Tom and his wife Debbie, son Ken and his wife Charlene, grandkids Thom and his wife Amy, Rick and his fiance Beth, Steve and Michelle. Nancy was preceded in death by her husband Tom, parents Joseph McKean and Elizabeth Lackie, and brother Ken McKean. A celebration of Nancy's life will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, April 14, at Point Loma Community Presbyterian Church, 2128 Chatsworth Blvd., San Diego. In lieu of flowers, Nancy's family is suggesting a donation in her name to either Point Loma Community Presbyterian Church or The Aztec Club.
